London: Former ‘American Idol’ contestant-turned singer Adam Lambert is getting advice from singing icons like Lady Gaga and Madonna to move up the ladder quickly.
Lambert turned to the singers for tips as his singing career began to take off and he revealed how Lady Gaga gave him "a good pep talk" and told him to work hard, reports dailystar.co.uk.
"Gaga told me about the previous three years. She worked really, really hard before she made it. She told me there`s no glamour, you don`t get a lot of sleep, you don`t get a lot of stability in your social life - you just have to count on yourself and go for it. It was a good pep talk. And she was right," said Lambert.
Lambert is also thankful to Madonna for helping him deal with online critics.
"Madonna told me that you can`t get wrapped up in all the media and message boards, that everyone`s going to have an opinion. People will criticise you especially when you`re doing it well," he said.
"You can`t do much better than getting career advice from Madonna. She`s the queen, right?," he added.
